My writings

I hope that by visiting posts that I mention here you’ll understand better myself and the purpose of this blog.

I also hope that as a result of reading my posts you’ll be able to ask yourself some questions, to know yourself better and to make better decisions in your lives.

After living 40 years in the USSR and 40 years in the USA I got a lot of experience, I went thru many historical events and met many very important and interesting people. I learned a lot about history.

Actually, I am a part of history.

*********************************************************************************************

My writings in this blog divided in several groups:

1) Stories about life in the Soviet Union.

There are many people even today and even among leaders of countries and parties who think that socialism and communism might be good and solve our current problems. Read my stories and you will know more how actually people lived in the Soviet Union.

Then you can decide if you want that your country became a totalitarian country, if you want that lifestyles of majority of citizens drastically worsened, if you want that government dictated how you must live.

Here are posts from this group:

“OH, THOSE AMERICANS!” (PART 1)

NO WORRIES OR ONE NIGHT IN CRIMEA

The last two posts also show that there is always possible to find humor and friendship in life.

The post about one night in Crimea requires short explanation. In the Soviet Union usually all available vacation places were distributed to members of the communist party and unions. There was impossible to get a room at any hotel in resorts during a season.

  1. I feel the same way with writing my blog. Initially I started it in my native language, hungarian. Recently I started writing in English, because I thought I could improve my skills, and I started getting a few international followers. It was nice to read your posts about life, and life in the Soviet Union. I found them really interesting because I still (sort of) remember the days in the 1980s when Russians were in Hungary. I even have a Russian language certificate ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. My mothers father was born in Russia. He fled during the Russian revolution and lived in Karelia (Karjala) where he married my grandmother. At the time of WW2 the whole family fled to FInland (Suomi). My mother moved to Sweden at the age of 20. I studied the Russian language for 3 years, but unfortunately forgot most of it, since I never had the opportunity to use it. โญ

    • I was one month in Karelia in summer of 1953. There is a wonderful system of lakes and rivers there (Vuoksa). Our group in 8 row boats (4 people in each) explored this system.
      When I became American we visited many countries (Sweden among them). I loved it.

  3. Somehow, I stumbled upon your blog now, this morning. The wonders of WordPress … you get to meet lots of people, when you take time out to browse around a little. I’m twenty years younger than you, English is not my native tongue [it’s Swedish]. After ten years in Canada, I can still feel a little stressed about finding the right words, at times.

    I’ve just started to explore your, quite extensive, interesting blog ๐Ÿ™‚
